Ready to Grow

With just a spray of mist twice a day, this low-maintenance, DIY mushroom kit will grow up to a pound and a half of gourmet pearl oyster mushrooms in as little as 10 days! Everything you need to get growing—the mister, instructions and box—is included, plus a natural soil substrate composed of recycled plant materials, such as corncobs, wheat bran, and oak shavings. Each kit grows 2–4 crops. Made in Oakland, California.

Recycled Made in the USA
Made from
oak wood, wheat, corn, oyster mushroom spawn
Measurements
4.5" L x 3.5" W x 11" H; 3 lbs.
Notes
Please note: This box contains a living mushroom root, so don't be surprised by what's inside! Most kits, when opened, will contain a white substance; this is the healthy mycelium (mushroom roots) ready to grow as soon as it's slit open. Kits are inoculated with oyster mushroom spawn after being thoroughly sterilized.

Mushrooms grown in a high altitude or dry climate might require a little extra attention. Soak the bag for at least 24 hours, spritz at least to 3-4 times per day and give your mushrooms a home in your garage, basement, closet or cupboard to avoid exposure to increased dryness from heating and AC systems.

Please note: not for customers or recipients with mushroom allergies.
Could take up to as many as 30 days to sprout.
Oyster mushrooms - the kind contained in the kit -love fresh air.

    Comments about Mushroom Kit:

    This mushroom kit included everything I needed to grow mushrooms. I got this as a Mother's Day gift. You take the box follow a few simple instructions, place it on the window sill, spritz it with water twice a day with the little spritzer bottle that comes with it and just watch your mushrooms grow. Just amazing and lots of fun to watch them grow. And it is not just a one time thing. Once you harvest the first side you open the back side of the box and start the next harvest. The web site says that the least crops you will get are 2 but could be as many as 10!! Just a great little kit.

      Comments about Mushroom Kit:

      My m-i-l LOVED this product, and she can't wait to grow her own mushrooms. She loves to cook with very fresh produce, and was quite excited to get this. She also said that the fact her granddaughters were "grossed out" by a mushroom growing kit made it all the sweeter.

        Way too much cardboard packaging. Wasteful. Nice mushrooms--will get me interested in buying/growing more. Only 2 small clumps coming out thus far--had for around 10 days. Beautiful looking exotic mushrooms. Bought for friend. Will buy more for brothers.

          Only grown one of the 2 sides.. saving the other because it was AWESOME. I got my bf this and the cheese making kit for xms and boy am I glad I added is on as a stocking stuffer! He was absolutely ecstatic ab the mushrooms and said they were his favorite guft! They sprout quickly , and by the 4th-10th day there was VISABLE HOURLY GROWTH. Absolutely amazing to watch as I passed thru the kitchen all day. There is also a neat snippet on the side, they will donate a kit to an elementary classroom of your choice if you submit a pic of your own grown mushrooms!

                Comments about Mushroom Kit:

                I was excited to give this gift to my brother in law for Christmas but was a little bummed that it had already sprouted out of the top of the package when he opened it. The instructions were vague; ie: "place package in sunlight". For how long? An hour, all day, the entire growing time? I'm sure it's just a bit of trial and error and my brother in law was happy with the gift. In all, the mushroom growing kit is a fun, unique gift for the gardener in your life.
